By Sadiq Umar – Former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Timi Frank, has revealed a botched plot to embarrass the People Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on arrival early hours on Sunday from Dubai.

Mr. Frank said Atiku, who returned to Nigeria around 1am on Sunday morning from his vacation in Dubai was thoroughly searched by a Special Squad of security men deployed by the presidency for some hours with recording gadgets on them and in and around Atiku’s aircraft.

“Nothing, was however found on him or in his aircraft,” Mr. Frank said in a statement on Sunday afternoon.

According to him, plan to also drop bags of foreign currencies and other incriminating things in Atiku’s aircraft on his arrival was also unsuccessful.

The former APC spokesman said the special squad of security men who carried out the search confessed that they were directed by the presidency to embarrass the former Vice President.

The squad, Frank revealed were armed with recording gadgets in and out of Atiku’s aircraft “to see if he returned to the country with foreign currencies or any other implicating materials.”

He, however, said the security men and the presidency were disappointed when nothing implicating is found on either Atiku or inside his aircraft.

While condemning what he tagged President Muhammadu Buhari’s move to desperately nail the PDP presidential candidate, Frank said if the former President Goodluck Jonathan was so harsh on President Buhari in 2015, he couldn’t have occupied the office today.

Frank said since Atiku Abubakar left office as Vice President for eight years, “this is the first time out of desperation to nail him that he has been searched embarrassingly.”

He, however warned president Buhari to desist from his act of desperation against the PDP presidential candidate.

“Due to information at our disposal, I have been saying it that the PDP presidential candidate is not save under this administration because the Buhari’s administration is deploying all manners of devilish strategies to nail all the opposition leaders especially, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

“We are using this medium to inform the international community to also take note of how Buhari administration is intimidating the opposition presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who has served Nigeria as Vice President for eight years.”
